Monday's freezing fog and strong winds formed the rime ice, creating a winter wonderland above the treeline in New Hampshire's aptly named White Mountains.

    A group of 26 people walked across a 209m (685ft) long highline rigged more than 50m (164ft) above the ground before getting comfortable in 17 brightly coloured hammocks. Monte Piana in the Italian Dolomites provided the perfect backdrop for the hammocks, where those inside read newspapers, played instruments, ate, and passed each other drinks.

    Guide Einar Runar Sigurdsson climbs a wall of ice inside the Waterfall Cave while exploring the frozen world of the Vatnajkull glacier in Iceland. Photographer Mikael Buck and renowned local guides Einar Runar Sigurdsson explored the frozen world using Sony’s latest digital cameras including the α7R II featuring the world first back-illuminated full-frame sensor which brings together ultra-high resolution and ultra-high sensitivity, the RX10 II and RX100 IV which feature the world’s first 1.0 type stacked Exmor RS CMOS sensor that truly shine in low-light and high contrast conditions. The images were taken without the use of any external sources – just the natural light that filters through the ice caves.

    The 'Crooked Forest' outside the village of Nowe Czarnowo, West Pomerania, Poland, is a unique and mysterious place. A section of 400 trees that are bent at 90 degrees at their base, lean in the same direction; due North. It remains a secret how these trees, planted in 1930, got their shape. The theories are that somebody did it to design bent wood to make furniture or barrel making easier. Others blame magic, magnetic fields, and all sorts of things.
